Fast X is about to get even better with the introduction of Rita Moreno into the Fast and Furious franchise. No, she isn’t coming in as Helen Mirren‘s bestie who does crime with her character. She’s coming into this universe as Dom Toretto’s grandmother. Not only is this a badass move for the franchise, but this also confirms that Dom is Latinx.
As expected, the news of Moreno joining Fast X had people all over Twitter excited. Everyone didn’t see it coming but were also not as surprised considering the fact that this franchise has sent someone to space. Yes, we’re still not over that. And it was glorious then and it’s glorious now. Now imagine Moreno in the mix and the fact that they aren’t going to leave her on the sidelines.
Right off the bat, fans wanted Moreno to get behind the wheel.
Others were psyched at the thought of the Fast and Furious franchise getting closer to doing a musical. Which, knowing these movies, it would actually happen.
Some pointed out the fact that at this point you’re either in the MCU or the Fast and Furious franchise. And if you aren’t, are you really an actor?
Other Twitter users were looking forward to Moreno racing against Brie Larson‘s character in Fast X. Maybe even a car chase between Moreno and Mirren.
And some users were wondering if it was ok for to enter this universe even though they haven’t watched even one Fast and Furious movie? Answer. You absolutely can because this family accepts all.
Whatever may come, we’re absolutely down for Rita Moreno joining this universe and showing Vin Diesel’s character how this racing thing is actually done.
Fast X is slated to hit theaters May 19, 2023.
